WHITE CITY — Jim Whisler came on strong to overtake John Duty to win the 50-lap late model A main at the Southern Oregon Speedway Friday.

Steven Sturdevant led the first part of the race until Shank swept through the field and took the lead in the tenth lap. Shank set the pace at 73.5 mph and got the white flag with a quarter-lap lead.

Brian Poppa won his third straight pro stock main event. Poppa took the lead early in the race while Frank Word III moved through the field to second position. Word III stayed right on Poppa's bumper through the end of the race. Word III came in second and Ron Willis took third.
